NO ENCORE‘s movies-and-music side project returns with a film that is definitely not a David Bowie biopic, honest. 1998 cult sensation Velvet Goldmine is up for discussion!

What’s with Ewan McGregor’s accent? What kind of career has Jonathan Rhys Meyers had? Is there an actual point to this film? Are the tunes any use? All that and more up for debate on this glitter-drenched episode…

ACT ONE: Arthouse gems. Sunday afternoon dad-core. Prestige TV shows. Jean-Claude Van Damme. It’s all happening in What We’ve Been Watching.

ACT TWO (31:48): Velvet Goldmine.
